Ethereum 2.0: staking reaches 100,000 ETH and price rises to a monthly high

Bitcoin has taken the limelight with its relentless rally, approaching its Date High (ATH). For its part, Ethereum is still far from reaching its own record.

This is the highest price Ethereum has seen since June 2018, after the crypto market bubble burst six months earlier. This time around, things are moving in a more positive direction and many industry watchers expect even bigger gains for ETH:

You can tell I’m crazy, but I really believe the $ ETH is going to rocket to $ 800 by the end of the year

A target of $ 800 for ETH is not unrealistic . Likewise, it would still be 42% below its all-time high, while Bitcoin is currently only missing 12% to reach its own ATH.

Ethereum validator Tyler Smith has set a four-digit price for ETH in the first quarter of 2021. However, this will require Beacon Chain to be launched and Bitcoin not entering a major correction phase.

Everyone is looking at Bitcoin, but people should take a huge position in $ ETH.

If the genesis of ETH2.0 (phase 0) goes well (and if Bitcoin doesn’t collapse and pull the market down in the meantime), we’ll see ETH go above $ 1,000. in the first quarter of 2021.

ETH 2.0 staking is progressing gradually

The momentum should continue to build if phase 0 of ETH 2.0 can actually see the light of day before the end of this year. For now, that seems unlikely, as the first staking, or stakes, took a long time to manifest.

According to the latest news from the Staking Progress Robot for ETH 2.0, over 100,000 ETH has now been staked. This equates to just under 20% of the total needed by November 24 to allow the Beacon Chain genesis process to take place on the scheduled date of December 1.

Few incentives for staking

While 1.8 million ETH left Uniswap over the past week, very few of them were placed in ETH 2’s depository contract. Only 23.5% of that total would be enough to reach the goal. That said, DeFi investors got another idea, and the majority have shifted to alternative protocols such as SushiSwap .

At the moment, there are few incentives to place ETH in staking, as there are no rewards until the mainnet launches. Considering the one-year lock-in obligation for staked ETHs, trading the asset or placing it in yield farms seems to be a better choice for the majority of Ethereum holders.

Le géant des paiements PayPal prévoit d’acquérir la plate-forme de garde de bitcoins BitGo.

Le géant des paiements PayPal est en pourparlers avec la plateforme de garde de bitcoins BitGo, qui prévoit de racheter la société. Cette acquisition pourrait accroître l’exposition de PayPal aux devises numériques.

PayPal prévoit d’acquérir la plate-forme de conservation de bitcoins BitGo. L’acquisition pourrait accroître l’exposition de PayPal aux devises numériques.

PayPal prévoit d’acquérir la plateforme de conservation de bitcoins BitGo. Cette acquisition pourrait accroître l’exposition de PayPal aux devises numériques.

PayPal est en pourparlers avec quelques grandes sociétés de cryptologie monétaire, dont le fournisseur de garde de Bitcoin Revolution qui une fois l’opération terminée, pourrait accroître l’exposition de la société de paiement en ligne aux devises numériques. En parlant avec des personnes connaissant bien le sujet, Bloomberg a indiqué qu’un accord avec BitGo pourrait être conclu en quelques semaines. BitGo fournit des solutions de conservation qui permettent à ses clients, principalement des investisseurs institutionnels, de stocker les bitcoins en toute sécurité.

L’acquisition de BitGo donnerait à PayPal une percée majeure dans l’industrie de la cryptographie.

Le géant du paiement en ligne PayPal s’ancrerait davantage dans l’espace de la cryptoconnaissance une fois qu’il aurait acquis une grande entreprise comme BitGo. Cependant, certains ont exprimé des inquiétudes quant à cette évolution. Thorchain, une autre société de cryptologie monétaire, a déclaré que l’acquisition de BitGo par PayPal signifierait que la majorité des jetons emballés à base de Bitcoins Ethereum – qui représentent les Bitcoins dont cette dernière a la garde – seraient entre les mains de la société de paiement. „PayPal n’est pas un bon acteur dans ce domaine. Positionnez-vous en conséquence“, avait tweeté M. Thorchain. Bitcoin a atteint 13 200 dollars avant de clôturer à 12 802 dollars mercredi, après que PayPal ait annoncé son entrée sur le marché de la cryptographie.

PayPal permettra à ses utilisateurs d’acheter, de vendre et de faire des achats en utilisant la cryptographie.

Comme indiqué précédemment, le géant du paiement en ligne PayPal a annoncé son entrée sur le marché de la cryptoconférence, permettant à ses clients d’acheter, de vendre et de conserver des bitcoins et d’autres pièces virtuelles en utilisant les portefeuilles en ligne de la société américaine de paiement numérique. Les clients de PayPal pourront également utiliser les cryptocurrences pour faire des achats chez les 26 millions de commerçants de son réseau à partir du début de 2021, a déclaré la société dans un communiqué. Le géant des paiements espère que ce service encouragera l’utilisation mondiale des nouvelles monnaies numériques et des CBDC qui pourraient être développées par les banques centrales et les entreprises.

Walmart tests the benefits of blockchain technology on mangoes from Mexico

Walmart and IBM test a pilot project in the fresh mango value chain in Mexico with the support of Blockchain technology.

The Blockchain technology has come to revolutionize the food industry thanks to the solutions it provides. Walmart, the powerful retail chain; and IBM, have recently decided to pilot test the Blockchain technology in Mexico’s fresh mango and pork value chains.

According to a report by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the two companies joined forces to implement this initiative, in order to facilitate food traceability, support security controls and ensure food authenticity to reduce food loss and waste. As reported by the Mexican digital newspaper Opportimes.

The multinational retail corporation made the decision from the outset to test the project with fresh mangoes from Mexico due to the complexity of the value chain. The use of this disruptive technology reduced the time needed to trace the origin of a pre-packaged portion of the fruit from almost seven days to 2.2 seconds.

The article notes that blockchain technology allowed Walmart to track the speed at which mangoes moved through the supply chain and to identify where delays occurred.

According to the FAO, the technology allowed value chain actors to identify the exact path the product took from the farm to the shop.

FAO: A Step Towards Innovation

In this sense, FAO stresses the importance of innovative approaches and the application of digital technologies in the agrifood sector, as well as reducing the loss and waste of food, are vital in the fight against hunger and poverty, which was the motto, of the organization at the opening of the recently held virtual event on strengthening global governance of food security and nutrition, organized by the Committee on Food Security (CFS).

In this regard, FAO Director-General QU Dongyu encouraged the promotion of innovation and addressing food loss and wastage as areas of great importance.

„I strongly believe in the power of innovation and digital technologies as a central tool for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular ODS2 (hunger) and ODS1 (poverty),“ he said.

The organization has already made great strides in helping its members drive innovation and now has a new Office of Innovation, where major macro initiatives have been introduced and where they have the first Chief Scientist in FAO’s history.

Walmart and the Blockchain

Walmart, the largest grocery retailer in the United States, has been entering the ecosystem of innovative blockchain technology for some time. Some of the experiences the supermarket network has had with the use of this technology and the benefits this technological disruption has brought to their supply chain have been mentioned above through Cointelegraph’s digital medium.

A recent example of this is the integration of Walmart China’s subsidiary, with the VeChain block chain, selected by the farmers‘ association in Italy to give traceability to the food supply chain.

This multinational retail conglomerate has also joined the Hiperledger open source chain consortium. In this regard, the vice-president of Walmart Global Tech, Sanjay Radhakrishnan, said that:

„We have seen strong results through our various blockchain implementations, and we believe that staying involved in open source communities will further transform the future of our business,“ he said to express his enthusiasm for joining the platform.

Meanwhile, in the People’s Republic of China, Walmart in a partnership with IBM and Tsinghua University, conducted a pilot program using Hiperledger’s blockchain technology to track the Chinese pork market, ensuring authenticity and origin.

Another of the retail chain’s experiences has been the registration of patents related to blockchain technology, a system that ensures the monitoring or tracking of packages by means of drones.

The encouraging results of Walmart’s experience with the blockchain technology have led this corporation to a constant technological update and implementation in different areas of the company, managing to expand the company’s capacity to track and monitor commercial transactions.

Forudsigelse af Bitcoin-pris: BTC / USD kan udvide nedadrettede korrektion til $ 10.000

I skrivende stund svæver BTC / USD til $ 10.592. Der har været tilfælde, hvor BTC har udvekslet hænder under $ 10.500, der opretholder den bearish prishandling er en nedadgående opgave. Som det ser ud nu, er den mindste modstands vej stadig nedad. Et blik på det daglige diagram viser dannelsen af ​​et bearish vimplemønster.

Hvor går BTC-prisen videre?

Ser man på den tekniske indikator RSI (14) i det daglige interval, er BTC / USD ikke færdig med ulempen. På trods af faldet er RSI (14) endnu ikke oversolgt. Det betyder, at der stadig er plads, der kan udforskes af bjørnene. Desuden kan mønten fortsætte med at følge nedtendensen, så meget som prisen forbliver under de 9-dages og 21-dages glidende gennemsnit.

På hovedet er opsving måske ikke let. For det første skal support sorteres over de glidende gennemsnit. I mellemtiden er et bæredygtigt skridt over denne barriere placeret omkring $ 10.800, hvilket kan negere det bearish scenarie og give mulighed for en udvidet genopretning mod modstandsniveauer på $ 11.200, $ 11.400 og $ 11.600.

Imidlertid kan en stigning i salgspres på tværs af markedet tvinge Bitcoin-prisen mod en smertefuld vej og gennem forskellige foreløbige understøttelser til $ 9.900, $ 9.700 og $ 9.500

Ser man på 4-timers diagrammet, har Bitcoin-tyrerne ikke været i stand til at skubbe markedsprisen over de glidende gennemsnit. BTC / USD har overlevet $ 10.000 support, da markedet genoptager den opadgående momentum. Kongemønten vender sandsynligvis tilbage til tyremarkedet, hvis prisen går over $ 10.700-niveauet. Højere modstand er placeret på $ 10.800 og derover.

Binance Coin (BNB) suffers rejection before hitting $ 30

The BNB has completed an evening star diagram.

Technical indicators are neutral.

There is support at $ 22.50 and resistance at $ 29

The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations based on transparency standards.

The course Binance Corner (NBB) was rejected on September 30, beginning a fall ongoing. While a near-term rebound is expected, the direction of the longer-term trend remains uncertain.

A lower peak

On September 14, the BNB price peaked at $ 33.35. That said, the price created a Doji candlestick followed by a bullish overlap Japanese candlestick, completing a shooting star pattern. This pattern is known as a bearish reversal.

The decline continued, until price hit a low of $ 22.22 on September 21, validating the $ 22.50 area as support.

On September 30, the price was rejected by the fibonacci level 0.618 of the entire decline, and fell once more. This created a lower high, at a current retracement level.

Technical indicators are neutral. The RSI is moving above 50 but is in decline, and the Stochastic Oscillator appears to have rejected a bullish cross.

Weaknesses responsible for a fall

Crypto trader @devchart shared a BNB chart, claiming the price rose 12% and would have changed the critical resistance of $ 26.50 into support. That said, since that tweet, the price has been rejected and has fallen back below the resistance zone.

The 6-hour chart shows that the fall was preceded by bearish divergences in the RSI and MACD.

At the time of writing this article, the price is moving at the 0.5 fibonacci level of the entire rally. In order to remain valid, BNB will need to hit a low soon and start rising.

Despite an unconfirmed bullish divergence in the RSI, there are no other signs to suggest that price will reverse its downtrend.

The wave count for BNB indicates that the price completed a correction in ABC (in orange below), with a bottom on September 21. The rally that followed looks impulsive rather than corrective (in red) and price appears to have completed a bullish momentum, currently moving into another correction in ABC.

It is not yet clear whether its rise is part of a bigger wave A or a new bullish momentum.

That said, the price should end its correction near $ 24. A decline below this would reduce the chances of it being a bullish impulse. Likewise, a decline below $ 22.10 would negate the possibility that this is the start of a new upward trend.

In conclusion, the price of BNB should find support near $ 24 and begin an upward movement. The direction of the longer-term trend remains uncertain.

Yearn Finance founder suggests major update to L2 platform

Yearn Finance could launch a major update to the protocol.

Layer 2 scaling solutions would be one of the new features.

The price of YFI tokens fell 15% during a market downturn

The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations based on transparency standards.

The popular Crypto Cash review has been one of the most active in terms of product development and upgrades in recent months. Lately, its founder hinted that an even bigger update was underway.

Yearn Finance has made giant strides since its launch. Its founder Andre Cronje, who has become something of a DeFi celebrity, revealed that the new system is much more complex.

The new Yearn system is probably the most complex to date. It integrates @synthetix_io @AaveAave @chainlink @iearnfinance and will work on L1 / L2

We’re trying to decide whether we should write an explanatory white booklet style before launch, or just kick in and surprise everyone?

Observers left in doubt by Andre Cronje

Not revealing any details in his teaser poll, Mr Cronje simply asked if they should post any information ahead of launch or just roll out the update to surprise everyone. This choice was then the most popular among the 5,350 respondents.

Some have suggested that a warning would help prevent influencers and whales from taking precedence over the rest, which has become a controversial standard in the ecosystem in recent times.

It is likely that the new Yearn v3 will incorporate more of other DeFi protocols in order to expand its current offerings which do the job for investors, saving them time and money.

A DeFi operator nicknamed “DeFiGod” (@ DeFiGod1), suggested a greater mix of existing protocols and assets:

It looks like synthetic issued / burnt asset swaps using Chainlink oracles to determine prices, AAVE will use these funds for coinage, and SNX / ethos contracts for the overall architecture.

More importantly, Andre Cronje has said that it will run on both Layer 1 and Layer 2, which will provide relief to users who have been affected by the recent spike in gas costs.

Scaling up to layer 2 is expected to enable thousands of transactions per second and a significant reduction in gas costs.

In addition to Yearn, DeFi Aave, Uniswap and Synthetix platforms are all set to roll out their own L2 solution upgrades.

Current YFI price

Yearn Finance is currently ranked sixth on the DeFi TVL charts with around $ 817 million in collateral locked according to DeFi Pulse .

Its native YFI token did not escape the clutches of bears during the cryptocurrency market’s massive sell-off this week . In the past 12 hours or so, YFI has suffered a 15% drop back to $ 22,500.

This slide is in line with an overall market decline that resulted in a loss of $ 10 billion in total market cap over the past 24 hours.

MicroStrategy Adiciona 16.796 Bitcoin More à sua Reserva; Agora possuindo 0,182% do fornecimento BTC

A MicroStrategy agora possui um total de 38.250 bitcoins a um preço de compra agregado de $ 425 milhões e reconhece oficialmente o BTC como o “ativo de reserva de tesouraria principal em uma base contínua”.

A MicroStrategy listada na Nasdaq acumulou cada vez mais bitcoins

O CEO da MicroStrategy Michael J. Saylor, hoje, acessou o Twitter para anunciar que a empresa comprou 16.796 bitcoins adicionais a um preço de compra agregado de $ 175 milhões em 14 de setembro de 2020.

Com esta última adição, a empresa agora possui um total de 38.250 bitcoins a um preço de compra agregado de $ 425 milhões.

Isso significa que a Bitcoin Circuit agora possui 0,182% de todo o fornecimento de bitcoin.

Na semana passada, a empresa de software de um bilhão de dólares que se tornou a primeira empresa de capital aberto a substituir suas reservas de caixa por bitcoin revelou suas intenções de mergulhar mais fundo no ativo digital líder em seu processo 8-k junto à SEC .

Como parte de sua nova política, “as participações da empresa em bitcoin podem aumentar além do investimento de $ 250 milhões que a empresa divulgou em 11 de agosto de 2020”, dizia.

A nova política envolve os ativos de reserva de tesouraria da empresa consistindo em bitcoin além de caixa, equivalentes de caixa e investimentos de curto prazo

Em 11 de setembro, o conselho da empresa reconheceu oficialmente o bitcoin como o „ativo de reserva de tesouraria principal em uma base contínua“, que está „sujeito às condições de mercado e às necessidades previstas do negócio para Ativos em dinheiro, incluindo atividade futura de recompra de ações em potencial“.

No mês passado, ao transformar grande parte de suas reservas de caixa em Bitcoin, a MicroStrategy se tornou o mais notável bulls de bitcoin de Wall Street .

A decisão de recorrer ao Bitcoin foi em busca de rendimento no atual „ambiente de baixa taxa de juros“. Além disso, em face da desvalorização do dólar americano, a empresa reconheceu que os ativos portos-seguros tradicionais, ouro e a prata, junto com o bitcoin, tem mostrado força.

Saylor, naquela época, chamava o bitcoin de “uma reserva confiável de valor e um ativo de investimento atraente” que tem mais potencial de valorização de preço a longo prazo do que reter dinheiro.

Chamando-o de „proteção razoável contra a inflação“, Saylor observou que o bitcoin é o mais difícil, mais forte, mais inteligente e mais rápido do que „qualquer dinheiro que o precedeu“.

Effusion de sang alors que le prix du Bitcoin chute en dessous de 10000 $

Le prix du Bitcoin étend la jambe baissière à des zones légèrement inférieures à 10000 USD après de nombreux essais pour maintenir des gains supérieurs à 12000 USD.

La trajectoire des prix Bitcoin de moindre résistance est maintenant à la hausse suite à des conditions de survente; un soutien supérieur à 10 300 $ est essentiel

La principale crypto-monnaie a cédé à la pression de vente apparente sur le marché. Cependant, cette fois, la chute n’était rien comparée à ce que nous avons connu au cours des deux derniers mois. À partir de sommets légèrement supérieurs à 12000 $, Bitcoin Evolution a initialement trouvé un arrêt au stand à 11100 $ (une zone de support populaire en août). La récupération a été immédiate, mais la crypto-monnaie phare n’a pas dépassé 11500 dollars.

L’impact d’un motif de coin ascendant

Plus tôt cette semaine, Coingape a souligné et discuté de la formation d’un motif de coin tombant. Des modèles de coin sont incorporés dans l’analyse technique pour signaler un renversement d’une tendance courante. Dans ce cas, le motif de coin ascendant a laissé entendre qu’un renversement aigu était sur le chemin de Bitcoin après une longue tendance haussière. Parfois, ces modèles de coin (qu’ils soient à la hausse ou à la baisse) sont ignorés et l’actif se négocie à des niveaux plus élevés.

Participez et gagnez une part de 150000 USDT

La chute libre de la tentative ratée de dépasser 11 500 $ a été alimentée par le fait que les acheteurs étaient épuisés par l’absence d’une action soutenue des prix au-dessus de 12 000 $ pendant près d’un mois malgré leurs efforts. De plus, négocier un prix plus bas aide parfois de nouveaux acheteurs à entrer en donnant à l’actif (BTC) une formidable poussée à la hausse soutenue par le volume.

La chute a été si massive que les appuis attendus à 11 000 $, 10 500 $ ou même 10 200 $ ont succombé à la pression intense. Bitcoin a jeté un coup d’œil dans la zone en dessous de 10000 USD avant d’échanger un minimum mensuel de 9995 USD.

ASIC legt strategischen Fokus für 2020-24 im Unternehmensplan fest

ASIC legt strategischen Fokus für 2020-24 im Unternehmensplan fest

Es ist nicht überraschend, dass sich die Aufsichtsbehörde auf die langfristigen Auswirkungen der Coronavirus-Pandemie konzentrieren wird.

Die australische Wertpapier- und Investitionskommission (ASIC) hat an diesem Montag ihren Unternehmensplan für die nächsten vier Jahre veröffentlicht, in dem sie ihre bei The News Spy Strategien und Prioritäten für den Zeitraum 2020-24 darlegt.

Es überrascht nicht, dass sich die australische Aufsichtsbehörde auf die Coronavirus-Pandemie konzentrieren wird, was darauf hindeutet, dass die Aufsichtsbehörde erwartet, dass COVID-19 für einige Zeit Auswirkungen auf die Finanzmärkte haben wird.

Insbesondere skizzierte die ASIC die Maßnahmen, die sie zur Bewältigung der langfristigen Auswirkungen der Pandemie ergreifen wird. Diese Aktionen werden von fünf strategischen Prioritäten geleitet:

  • Schutz der Verbraucher vor Schaden in einer Zeit erhöhter Verwundbarkeit;
  • die Aufrechterhaltung der Widerstandsfähigkeit und Stabilität des Finanzsystems;
  • Unterstützung australischer Unternehmen bei der Reaktion auf die Auswirkungen der COVID-19-Pandemie;
    Fortsetzung der Ermittlung, Unterbrechung und Durchsetzung von Maßnahmen gegen die schädlichsten
  • Verhaltensweisen; und
  • unsere organisatorischen Kapazitäten in schwierigen Zeiten weiter auszubauen.

Doch der Wachhund konzentriert sich in den nächsten vier Jahren nicht nur auf COVID-19. Die Aufsichtsbehörde wird auch bestrebt sein, durch ihre „Warum nicht prozessieren?“-Disziplin schlechtes Verhalten und Fehlverhalten zu verhindern

Die Behörde wird sich auch darauf konzentrieren, das Fehlverhalten von Unternehmensleitern und professionellen Dienstleistern zu verringern, das Risikomanagement zu verbessern und ein gesundes Finanzsystem und Wirtschaftswachstum zu fördern.

James Shipton, der Vorsitzende der ASIC, kommentierte den Unternehmensplan in der Erklärung: „Unser Hauptzweck ist es, das Vertrauen in ein Finanzsystem zu gewährleisten, das auch unter Stress fair, stark und effizient bleiben kann. Vertrauen ist die Grundlage des wirtschaftlichen Erholungsprozesses.

„Dies ist der Zweck unserer gesamten Arbeit, sowohl im unmittelbaren Kontext der Pandemie als auch darüber hinaus. Wir werden weiterhin rasch und strategisch auf die Bedrohungen reagieren, die in einem unsicheren Umfeld entstehen.

ASIC kündigt Änderungen in der Exekutive an

Als Teil ihres Plans und der angepassten Prioritäten bei The News Spy hat die ASIC zwei wichtige organisatorische Änderungen vorgenommen. So ernannte die Aufsichtsbehörde Warren Day, der zuvor Executive Director, Assessment and Intelligence war, zum Chief Operating Officer.

Die Behörde hat auch die Rolle des Chief Risk Officer geschaffen, teilte sie heute mit. Die neu geschaffene Position wird von Zack Gurdon übernommen.

Kraken exec: 5 grunner til at Bitcoin er ‚i begynnelsen av en bull run‘

En kombinasjon av skremmende makrofenomener og Bitcoin styrke staver staver for Kraken Dan Held.

Bitcoin er „i begynnelsen“ av et utvidet oksekjøring, og det er stadig tydeligere grunner til å godta det.

Det mener Dan Held, leder for vekst ved USAs cryptocurrencybørs Kraken , som listet opp de siste bevisene for bullish Bitcoin ( BTC ) 24. august.

Mange kommentatorer har hevdet at Bitcoin bare er i gang når det kommer til prisstigninger. For Held er de medvirkende faktorene både Bitcoin-spesifikke og makrorelaterte.

In-profit UTXOs nær 98%

Over 97% av Bitcoin ubrukte transaksjonsutstyr (UTXOs) – eller deler av en transaksjon som involverer mynter som er returnert til initiativtakeren – er i fortjeneste.

Som Cointelegraph rapporterte , betyr dette at mindre enn 3% av transaksjonene skjedde til en høyere pris enn den siste høyden på $ 12.400. Vanligvis skjer dette i begynnelsen av bullish perioder.

Sagt på en annen måte, nesten 98% av all BTC er nå verdt mer enn når noen mottok det, noe som betyr at langsiktige investorer har det bedre enn nesten noen gang i historien til Bitcoin.

Bitcoin har nå holdt seg over 10.000 dollar i den nest lengste perioden i levetiden, bundet med juli 2019.

Forsyningsløshet staver HODL

I mellomtiden, som bemerket av CasaHODL-medgründer Jameson Lopp, har ett års aktiv forsyning nådd det laveste siden de første dagene i 2011.

„Folk vil ikke skille seg med bitcoin,“ oppsummerte han.

Held refererte til 61% av det totale BTC-tilbudet som forblir stasjonært i over ett år, noe Cointelegraph tidligere identifiserte som et bullish signal – investorer velger å holde og ikke å handle eller selge.

Vekslingsbalanser på samme måte som å slå lavt nivå bidrar til teorien.

En betimelig halvering

Ovennevnte faktorer som oppstår i månedene etter at Bitcoos tredje halvdelstilskudd halveres, styrker det bullish argumentet.

Gruvearbeidere har kommet seg etter inntektstapet, mens etterspørselen har holdt seg iøynefallende, spesielt fra kjøpere av selskaper og institusjoner.

Samtidig har Bitcoins inflasjonsrate dyppet som et resultat av halveringen, noe som gjør gjentatte store innkjøp til en stadig dyrere virksomhet.

Inflasjonen fortsetter
Da MicroStrategy gjorde Bitcoin til sin nye statskassevaluta, fremhevet administrerende direktør, Michael Saylor, pengepolitikken som en stor bekymring som presset ham bort fra fiat-valuta .

Held var enig i, og pekte ofte på uberegnelig pengetrykk fra sentralbankene som et sentralt argument til fordel for Bitcoin-adopsjon.

Denne politikken, sa han, er nå i „overdrive“ i uken som Federal Reserve blir tippet for å avsløre en plan for å øke inflasjonen.

Verdensgjeld snøballer

Til slutt er global gjeld i prosent av bruttonasjonalprodukt nå høyere enn på noe tidspunkt utenfor krigstid.

Dette nesten uhindrede gjeldsfjellet – i overkant av 255 billioner dollar , selv før coronavirus – viser ingen tegn til å bremse.

Praksisen taler til den klassiske keynesianske mantraen om gjeld og dens konsekvenser for de som skaper den: „I det lange løp er vi alle døde.“
